Generally speaking, spices are single-ingredient items which are inherently gluten-free. No grain is considered a spice. Seasonings, however, can be a blend of just about anything. In the US, by law, wheat must be clearly disclosed, but barley and rye do not. FWIW, I have NEVER encountered a case where rye was hidden--it is barley with which you need to be concerned.

Not that I've tried them all, but I shop Costco all the time and used many of their spices with no problems. I have been very happy with their vitamins and calcium also with no problems.
